incressed by $45 trillion. what about promising to bring down unemployment? president obama will spend 90 minutes tonight from 9:00 to 10:55 or whatever time talking about how -- >> you are in the crowd that romney is going to get the job without saying anything? you think romney can get the job without saying anything? >> dana: where do you get he hasn't said anything? >> bob: tell me what he said about medicare. >> dana: i am not a spokesperson for romney come pain. i read the 59-point plan which is darned detail you made fun of before. >> bob: it's laughable. >> dana: you can is not say he doesn't have a plan. it sounds so hollow. >> bob: what do you say it's not true? you have to lay it out. >> kimberly: you are making statements that are inaccurate. you may it or disapprove, your right, but the american people should decide whether or not they think he can do a better job. >> bob: you know something i don't know. tell me what is the plan? >> eric: who cares -- >> kimberly: why do i care about the liberals? why are you caring about the liberals? >> bob: you said he has a plan. i don't
unemployment rate in the country. barack obama won here comfortably four years ago. this time it will be closer. >> you're going to have a big choice to make, nevada. and it's not just choice between two candidates or two political parties. it's a choice between two different paths for this country. >> this is the other path. mitt romney, the businessman turned politician who is promising to turn the economy around slipped a little in the polls but it's still too close to call. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward to america we can choose and the people are going to have to make a choice. >> more money is being spent on this election than ever before. who wins depends on how people vote in a handful of swing states and in a few areas of those states so all the money is being spent on bombarding the undecided with tv ads and phone calls. >> this is from the obama campaign. i'm a volunteer. >> the democrats have a well-oiled campaign machine. >> we are outnumbering republicans with new voter registrations. we have volunteers in here every single day m
% unemployment under obama. if you go back to 1948 and combine all the presidents before them combined, they together had 39 months. so that's how bad the unemployment situation is. i think, actually, i agree with joe. it's both, it's a two-part sale. he needs to make the case against obama and why obama has failed and why he won't, nothing will change if obama's reelected. but at the same time, he needs to present a compelling, alternate vision, and that's one of the reasons he's stalled in the polls. people realize that obama has not delivered, but romney hasn't effectively delivered that message. so he needs to do that tonight, joe is right. but at the same time, the challenge to obama is he has not explained how his second term would be different, and if he doesn't do that, then he's going to have a hard time making the sale as well. megyn: joe, is there, you know, is there, is there more opportunity for mitt romney tonight than we've seen on any other night? i mean, is this really -- like, this is his chance to do it? >> certainly in past debates the challenger seems to do very we
already. normally you would argue that an unemployment rate this high in an economy growing this weakly would be very bad news for an incumbent president. it's somewhat vicing then that president obama has maintained the slight edge in the polls given how weak the economy is, but certainly weak growth, high unemployment are not good for anyone in elected office and are are not good for anyone looking for a job either. >> susie: you know, tonight obviously in the debate president obama and governor romney will be talking about the job market do. you expect them to give any kind of plan to jolt the labor market and to get that unemployment rate down drastically? >> i think both candidates are likely to be somewhat vague in their discussion of proposals to great jobs. if i were asking the question, i think the one that i with like to hear answered most would be, what are you going to do about the approaching fiscal cliff if we go over the fiscal cliff, if we plunge over the highest bluff along the fiscal cliff, it's very likely the economy will fall into recession and the unemployment rate
presidency. explain the map, dark green, unemployment went down a lot in the obama presidency. went up a lot in new york, that's not a battleground stalt, but it went up a lot in nevada. that is a big battleground state. went down a decent amount in ohio. another battleground state. the candidates of course will be speaking to the neigh, but they know this race is playing out in six, eight, maybe nine battleground states. take a closer look as the candidates talk about the economy tonight in florida, iowa, ohio, virginia and wisconsin the unemployment rate has dropped during the obama presidency. no surprise if you look at the recent polls, the president is ahead. some by a bit, some states narrowly, some states bigger. but the president ahead in all of these battleground states where the unemployment rate has dropped during his presidency. the debate tonight is in one of the fiercest fought battles right now, the state of colorado. it happens to be one ot battleground states where the unemployment has gone up. in colorado and nevada it's gone up. no coincidence they are among the tightest a
other for 90 minutes. president obama has to avoid any major missteps and explain to voters why unemployment is so high and the economic recovery so slow. >> i think what you'll hear the president do tonight is have a conversation directly with the american people about where we have been over the past four years and what we have to continue to do moving forward to strengthen our economy. >> romney who is trailing in the polls will be looking for a breakout moment. and voters will be looking to hear more details about his plan to lower taxes and the deficit. >> i think that you'll hear a great deal of specifics and most importantly, you'll hear the contrast. the president's reforms haven't done enough to help the economy. >> both campaigns have gone through the motions of lowering expectations for tonight. but both candidates are season debaters. >> it's all about the economy tonight. the first three 15 minute segments will be devoted to that topic. in denver, colorado, danielle nottingham, derek, back to you. >> all right, thank you danielle. back here, the political edit
and cut down the tree they did not say you could not do any of those under the epa. lou: obama appeals to the middle-class as he will try tonight unemployment over 8% it has ben devastating. how this the have a compelling message the shambles of the middle-class? >> he is not afraid of the truth he does not want the american people to know the work force is shrinking and it is more profitable for the american people to be on the dole and for them to go out to work that has made the workforce shrink and make it smaller. >> how does governor romney convince the people that are watching and make it compelling he could change the destiny of the correction and of the country within two minutes or maybe the rebuttal? >> he does not have the two hours mr. lincoln had more douglas had he has to give the impression to lay out the vision of america that is true how we create abundance by inspiring of entrepreneurs as well as middle income people who aspire to the next rung on the latter as a man who achieved it himself and that is unmistakable. >> except both our beneficiaries of this economic s
